Song Premiere: Lou Canon, “Invisible Desire”

Having already dropped singles “Ancient Chamber”, “Next to You”, and “M.O.T.R.,” Lou Canon has dropped her fourth single off her upcoming album Audomatic Body, “Invisible Desire.”

“This song is about pushing higher, going further, moving deeper. And engaging with the world in a sensual way,” says Canon in regard to “Invisible Desire.”  “There is a passage by James Baldwin that encapsulates this sentiment, “To be sensual, I think, is to respect and rejoice in the force of life, of life itself, and to be present in all that one does, from the effort of loving to the making of bread.”

Sonically, Audomatic Body is more immediately melodic than 2017’s Suspicious — an album that was moody and atmospheric and textural, best listened to through headphones in a quiet space. Parts of the new album were recorded with Grammy-winning producer Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Timber Timbre, Basia Bulat) in Montreal, while others were made in home set-ups at a little cabin in the Russian river, up north in Grey County, in Prince Edward County and in Toronto. Audomatic Body belongs on its very own plane. Its swampy waters filled with electric eels, where natural and synthetic vibrations coalesce beneath Canon’s delicately distorted, sometimes almost-whispered vocals.

Audomatic Body is out July 10 on Paper Bag Records.
